It has been one helluva week around here.
I join all parents out there in my loathing of the daylight savings time shift. I love more daylight hours, but I do not like what it’s done to my baby’s schedule. We’ve been fighting the battle all week.
But even worse than the nap time struggle was the stomach bug I picked up that stole three days of my life. It took my energy, and worse, took my appetite. I lived off of soda crackers and gatorade until today, when I woke up finally feeling like myself.
And I wanted cookies.
It felt really good to get back in the kitchen and these chocolate oatmeal cookies hit the spot. I may have had more cookies than is recommended for one person to consume in a single day, but I figure I was making up for lost time. The cookies are what happens when you cross rich brownies with oatmeal cookies. Soft and chocolaty, but chewy and a little crisp on the edges.
Cookies are a magical treat, a cure for whatever ails you. Whether it’s a cranky baby, a flu bug, or a completely different problem, these chocolate oatmeal cookies will perk you right up. My week is definitely looking a whole lot better.
